Property description

Away from it all, yet only minutes to Winter Park/Mary Jane & SolVista ski resorts, this large home offers room for you to spread out! Reconnect with your kids during a family game marathon. Lounge by the fire with a great book. Enjoy relaxed, affordable meals, thanks to our well-equipped kitchen. Make memories roasting marshmallows around the campfire on cool summer nights, and marvel at the incredible starry skies. And feel free to bring your furry friends -- dogs are welcome!

This 1500 square-foot home sits on 2 quiet acres and is quickly and easily accessed from county-maintained & plowed roads; it's only 3 minutes to highway 40. This tranquil wooded cabin has a great room, cozy gas fireplace, deck, views & privacy.

The two oversized bedrooms have blackout shades for late sleepers, & can accommodate up to 5 guests. The queen-sized sleeper sofa in the great room can sleep up to 2 more. Two bathrooms, each with double sinks, offer plenty of elbow room in the mornings. Along with 2 satellite TVs, we have a wide assortment of games, books & movies. There’s lots of toys for kids, as well as their own play cabin. The large attached 2-car garage is priceless on cold days & has room for all your outdoor toys.

In the basement, there's a high-efficiency washer and dryer; ideal for drying out wet snow clothes after a day on the slopes, or cleaning up your mountain biking gear after an exhilarating ride!

Welcome to your home away from home!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: My husband and I met while volunteering years ago for the National Sports Center for the Disabled in Winter Park, a fantastic program that has positively changed thousands of lives (including ours!) Ever since then, the Fraser Valley has been our home away from home. One day, we'd like to retire up here & enjoy every blue sky day for biking & powder day for boarding -- until then, we're content to try & keep up with our kids!

Why the Owner Chose Winter Park Highlands (Tabernash, CO, USA):
Our family loves nature and playing outdoors! That's one of the main reasons we chose to build our vacation home outside of Tabernash. We love being centrally located to so many fun activities in every season -- awesome mountain & trail biking throughout Fraser Valley, hiking & wildlife viewing at Rocky Mtn. National Park, fishing & boating at Lake Granby, soaking at Hot Sulphur Springs, and of course great boarding & skiing at SolVista & Winter Park (not to mention the WORLD'S BEST BUMP SKIING at MaryJane! WooHoo!)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Although we wanted to be close to as many outdoor activities as possible, we also didn't want to spend our weekends elbow-to-elbow with our neighbors. Our land is high enough for great views and NO highway noise, big enough to explore, yet still close enough to the highway to be convenient. Although our home offers basic accommodations, we've added different features to make it more fun & comfortable -- like the outdoor fire ring for star-gazing & roasting hotdogs, and the washer/dryer for cleaning muddy biking clothes!
